Project T-top Coupe has come a long way since the last time we were able to take an engine photo like this one. The coupe’s latest bullet has 353ci and features Scat’s forged crank and rods, JE flat-top pistons, the same Comp Cams hydraulic-roller camshaft that we’ve used from the beginning, and upgraded AFR cylinder heads (from 205s to 225s). Rocco Acerrio of A.R.E. Performance & Machine in Simi Valley, California, designed and assembled this engine for the project ’Stang. We’re confident the piston change (from SRP dished to JE flat-top), bigger cylinder heads, and intake-air cooling provided by Vortech’s Mondo intercooler, will show us greater efficiency over the coupe’s previous (non-intercooled) 350ci engine.
